This week, the developers of the upcoming MMORPG, Ship of Heroes, announced some new details on a non-super powered mercenary villain group that will be in the game called the Yekus Mercenary clan. Alpha tests also recently began for the game’s character creator.
The developers are describing the group as a multi-species pack of soldiers who are hired for all sides. The new characters revealed include an Officer, a Big Guy Model (a rare Super Powered NPC working with the Yekus), a female soldier, and a male soldier.
The Big Guy Yekus base design shows the character with integrated cybernetic parts and a variety of high-tech weapons. Additionally, the game is going to have multiple independent competing armies throughout the world. However, it will not be unusual for various mercenaries to find work with the FHS Justice after they are hired by rich heroes or ship security, or possibly more secretive factions.
The Mercenaries on the Hero Ship will be limited to certain areas, and they will have to report on their battles to someone from ship security in order to prevent sabotage and to limit fighting. The leader of the Yekus Clan is called Matthew Ingles, aka “Mad Matt” due to his reckless behavior and preference for leading his troops in fights. It’s suspected that Ingles has super powers but he uses a wide variety of homemade gadgets, so it’s hard to tell what his exact abilities are.
According to the developers, the plan is to be able to swap between clothing between models for the Yekus characters with the Ship of Heroes Character Creator. You can check out some new images for the Yekus Mercanary clan in the gallery below. Click on the thumbnails to see the full-size images.
